2.75/5  rDev -28.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

A - Pitch black, with an inch of sticky tan foam.

S - Roasty and kinda hoppy - good start. Some smokiness, citrus, molasses, maybe a hint of earthiness. Kinda like roasted grapefruits over a peat fire...

T - Not nearly as bitter as expected, a little tart up front, and somewhat sweet. Some toasted flavours and a bit of nuttiness is present, but I'm not getting *anything* but the tartness up front.

M - A bit chewy, but mostly the feeling of not tasting any flavour is odd and disconcerting.

D - Kinda bland in a wierd way. Not even sure how to describe it... I wouldn't even think a stout could be made to taste this little.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours black with a light tan head.
Nose shows cocoa and roasted malt with a little sweet liquorice in the background.
More roasted malt as a flavours but not particularly complex. Again a hint of liquorice shows as well as some faint coffee but it's pretty subtle.
Could use more carbonation.
